OMG, there is so much insane drama in the Lohan family that it cannot all be contained in just one singular post. Over the weekend, we learned that Lindsay Lohan is mulling over the possibility of getting a restraining order against her father Michael after he failed to stage an intervention at her home here in LA last week. It turns out, tho, that Daddy Lohan was not alone in his bid to stage this intervention … everyone in Lindsay‘s management team (including her loyal lawyer Shawn Holley) was on board after they learned of reported alcohol and drug use by Lindsay. Still, Lindsay is pissed that her father would even try to step to her. Michael Lohan is undaunted tho, even tho his intervention failed he still wants to exert his control over Lindsay … even if that means that he will attempt to have her placed under his legal control by conservatorship. It’s like, this family can’t stop thinking of ways to attack one another in an attempt to completely annihilate their family.
Michael Lohan was NOT ALONE in orchestrating an emergency intervention on Lindsay Friday — and TMZ has seen emails proving that her ENTIRE team, including her lawyers and her manager … were 100% on board. The emails are between Michael, Evan Hainey (LiLo’s manager) Dave Feldman (entertainment lawyer) and Shawn Holley (criminal defense lawyer). The emails were sent between Sept. 23rd and Oct. 18th (the day before Michael’s intervention). Michael emailed Evan and Shawn on Sept. 23rd, claiming he had been informed by several people Lindsay was “drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day” adding, “I have seen the empty bottles and even cocaine in her room at Chateau.” Michael continues, “She is AGAIN, taking pills to keep her up and to sleep (adderall)!! I even know that she is and was drinking during work as far back as Liz and Dick!” Michael then pleads, “I am asking you to PLEASE PLEASE find a way to get her to LA toward the end of the first week of October or the beginning of the second so we can do an intervention and FINALLY end this madness!” LiLo’s manager Evan responds the same day to Michael and Shawn, “I am hearing the same things.” Evan continues, Lindsay will fly back to L.A. Oct 15th — and they should plan an intervention for that week. Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn responds unequivocally, “Let’s do it.” On Oct. 12th Michael and LiLo’s entertainment lawyer, Dave, sent multiple emails to each other — planning a conference call with a well-known interventionist, named Earl Hightower. Then on Oct. 18th (the day before the intervention) Michael sent an email to Evan … revealing a plan to confront LiLo at her Bev Hills home. According to text messages from Oct 19th, which we have also seen, the group decided Michael would confront LiLo FIRST … and everyone else would show up afterwards. TMZ broke the story … the emergency intervention floundered — Michael showed up to Lindsay’s pad, but she turned him away and called the cops … which put a kabosh on the whole thing.
Clearly, Daddy Lohan isn’t alone in his concern over his daughter … but the management folks were SMART to let him lead the charge to see how it might go. With him as the sacrificial lamb, they could step in and join the intervention IF things were going well or they could just let him fry on his own … which is what they did. As for the planned conservatorship, well, I doubt Lindsay‘s management team would be on board with letting Daddy Lohan control her personal and financial decisions:
Michael Lohan will go to court in an attempt to get a conservatorship for his daughter, Lindsay Lohan … TMZ has learned. Michael has told an attorney, his daughter is in the danger zone … a substance abuser, he says, who is hanging with the wrong group of people, including Dina Lohan. Michael will meet with lawyers early this week, and there’s one thing he does want — he will NOT become Lindsay’s conservator, because he doesn’t want to run her finances so people will pass it off as a money grab. We’re told Michael wants the judge to decide who to appoint conservator, but he says it CAN’T be Dina. Michael told the lawyer the first thing he will do if there’s a conservatorship is convince the conservator to send Lindsay to rehab, without the influence of the other people in her life. Michael says every time Lindsay has been to rehab — including at Cirque Lodge and Betty Ford — “She went in dirty and didn’t come out clean,” and he blames it on the people in her life who helped fuel her addiction. Michael also told the lawyer he wants the conservator to somehow convince Dina that they need family therapy. He says Dina has always refused it in the past, and it has been a big stumbling block in Lindsay’s recovery.
While all of the the adults in Lindsay‘s life (except for her mother Dina Lohan) seem to be working together to “save” her from herself, Lindsay has the full love and support of her siblings (Michael Jr., Aliana and Dakota) who are standing by her — against her father and his machinations:
Michael Lohan’s OTHER children have a clear message for their dad — he needs to stop spreading lies about Lindsay and their family … because they want nothing to do with him. TMZ spoke to Michael Jr., Ali and Cody Lohan about their father’s recent antics, specifically his LiLo “intervention” — and they tell us, it’s just a desperate attempt to destroy their family. Michael Jr. says, “I think it’s unfortunate that the public had to be unwittingly invited into the lives of my family members due to my father’s lies” — then adds he and his siblings no longer associate with their dad. Ali tells us … Michael’s recent attacks against Dina Lohan were the last straw, saying “Please stop waging your own personal war against my family. We don’t need you to intervene because we can take care of ourselves without you, as we have been all these years.” Cody added “I have no good memories of my so called father. He has never been part of my life, he needs to leave my family alone.”
It remains to be seen how this Lohan Civil War will play out but I’m pretty certain it won’t end quickly or quietly. One other bit of good news for L. Lo, the hit and run charges that were brought against her last month in NYC have been dropped, so she can celebrate on that front:
Lindsay Lohan will not be prosecuted for an alleged hit-and-run that went down in front of a NYC hotel back in September … TMZ has learned. Lohan had been scheduled to appear in court tomorrow stemming from her September 19 arrest for leaving the scene of an accident … when she allegedly drove a Porsche into a bystander at The Dream Hotel. Now … after surveillance footage surfaced … prosecutors decided there was not enough evidence to get a conviction so they’ve decided to drop the case against the actress. The alleged victim can still pursue a civil case against Lohan — if he chooses to go that route. Sources tell us … Lohan is “ecstatic” about the case being dismissed … but still plans to go after her accuser for defamation.
So, good news / bad news for Lindsay. It’s only Monday tho and the week ahead could be fraught with more Lohan v. Lohan drama. Heaven help us all.
